Bilingual Customer Service Representative (English-French Canadian) – Work from Home

Service à la clientèle bilingue - français canadien - anglais - Travail à domicile
We’ve all been there… you want to order a new service, have a question, or are experiencing an outage with your phone provider, an online retailer, your entertainment system. You pick up the phone to dial that 1-800 customer service number. Did you know that you might just be speaking to one of the 5,000+ SYKES Home Customer Care Professionals and that person might just live around the corner? That’s right... SYKES Home is currently hiring caring individuals to provide high-quality, bilingual customer service for some of the world’s largest brand names right from their own home. Technology has allowed us to build an entire business around putting people to work at home.

SYKES Home's work at home jobs provide thousands of people the unique opportunity to earn extra income while achieving work-life balance. There are numerous reasons people want or need to work from home — children, elderly parents, school, disabilities, medical conditions, flexible schedule, additional income, location and more.


The option to care for customer needs from home can be a challenging, yet rewarding career, particularly for individuals unfamiliar with the virtual work at home model. Our business is people serving people, that’s why we are striving to be a people-first culture… we believe taking care of our own employees is the foundation to providing a superior customer experience. At SYKES Home, we prepare you for the job you were hired to perform through training and resources, a dedicated support team and the tools necessary to help you develop and succeed!
